Two myths are (1) that Canada’s alleged free banking system with its extensive branch banking was the only or the major reason why the Canadian financial system did not experience mass bank failures from 1929-1933, and (2) that there was no significant government intervention in the financial sector in the 1920s and 1930s before 1935. This allowed Dominion banks to borrow notes directly from the Canadian Department of Finance: such notes were issued at the request of the banks with no gold-reserve requirement (Shearer and Clark 1984: 279). The Finance Act clause, which was extended after the wartime emergency by the Amendment of 1923, provided a discount window/lender of last resort for the Canadian banking system.” (Bordo 2005: 292).
Thus the Finance Act (1914) allowed the Canadian government the power to expand the money supply by creating dominion notes unbacked by gold (Bothwell, Drummond, English 1987: 183-184). The private banks in fact had lines of credit with the discount window at the Department of Finance which they could access on demand through advances at a posted interest rate. The Finance Act of 1914, then, effectively made the government a lender of last resort” and became a permanent part of the financial system (Naylor 2006: 526-527).

For example, in 1924, the Dominion and Imperial Banks experienced runs and turned not just to other banks, but to the Department of Finance for liquidity to avert a crisis (Carr, Mathewson, Quigley 1995: 1147). It is perfectly clear, then, that Canada after 1914 and during the Depressions years – but before its formal central bank of 1935 – had significant government interventions that provided banking stability.
